I've hacked a little feature into xfwm4.2rc2: scrolling your mousewheel on a
window's border changes its opacity. Although I rarely make use of
translucent windows, I find it really convenient to change the window
transparency that way.
I hope you like that idea and it gets implemented into xfwm4 one day.
The patch also contains a tiny change to compositor.c: Translucent
windows tend to get a bit dark, due to their underlying shadow. I
changed the formula for the shadow's darkness to be proportional to
the window's opacity^2, which does look a bit better to my eyes.
Thanx for that wonderful DE!

small error corrected with overflowing guint c-opacity with transset
corrected small error with overflow guint c->opacity after incresing opacity

Thanks, you're patch is taken with modifications and will show up in CVS HEAD soon.
Yay! Thanks, I was just beginning to write a patch myself, but thankfully here
it is. :-) Love you! :-)
Seems I forgot to fix close that one as the patch as accepted a while back.
